Justabeli Interview

samedi 8 août 2015 à 05:57

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band these days?
1 - War Feres: After getting a downtime, decided to resume the activities of the band in 2014, I invited Victor Prospero to take guitarist station and Furlanetto for the battery. Finished compositions, recorded and after that the CD was released in Brazil by Mutilation Records and will be released in Sweden by the Black Lion.

2.In May you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
2 - War Feres: This album has been treated from the beginning as a very special thing, I wanted to do everything to stay with the best possible quality in every way. And Victor embraced this cause ... Lapidamos riff by riff, until it was in a way that would please everyone, all done with the utmost dedication. Technically speaking, the difference is remarkable at the time we recorded the "Hell War", we had no experience, mistakes that were made were not repeated in the "Cause The War Never Ends ..." But the essence remains the same, the anger and hatred when playing has not changed, only increased and continued more satanic than ever, hence the name "The GERRA NEVER ENDS ...".

3.This is the first album to be released in 7 years, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?
3 - War Feres: After the release of "Hell War" were two years playing for several states in Brazil next door and great bands like UNEARTHLY, VULCANO, CALVARY DEATH, necromancy, BYWAR, Mystifier, KRISIUM among others and opened the tour the band Polish Besatt the south of the country, but with problems in forming the band stood. Only returned in 2014, the Justabeli was one of the opening acts at the Show of Greek band ROTTING CHRIST, next to the Ocultan and Black Death.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
4 - War Feres: I enjoy writing about wars and the occult.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Justabeli'?
5 - War Feres: Having your name originated from the junction of two Latin words, just (alongside) and beli (War), meaning thereby 'sitting by the war' (as much as being in favor, as the sup- ported , to fight in self-defense of the nation).

6.What are some of the best shows that the band ha splayed over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
6 - War Feres: The best shows of gigs in Brazil even in São Paulo. Being on stage is like this in the war, I try to do my best to make a good show.

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
7 - We have scheduled tours, most producers in Brazil do not give any support and the bands have to take out of pocket money to play.

8.The new album was released by both Mutilation Records and Black Lion Productions, do you feel these 2 labels have been very helpful when it comes to getting your music out there heard?

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?

9 - War Feres: Yes, the acceptance of the public is being very good.

10.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part off?
10 - War Feres: As in Brazil most musicians can not live music, people leave the music to work in another profession.


11.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

11 - War Feres: I think the evolution of a band happens naturally musically speaking.

12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
12 - War Feres: I like bands like Immortal, Dissection, Sarcophagus, Belphegor, Desaster, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Bathory, Marduk, Kreator, Sodom, Amon Amarth, Slayer and etc.

13.How would you describe your views on Satanism?
13 - War Feres: There are many views on Satanism, nowadays I see how philosophy, freedom, respect yourself, nature and the universe, but not idolize to anything, I do not believe in a God and would be the last person to say that there is, because there is no real proof that there is a God and no one has so far failed to prove to the world that there is a God. What exists are hypocritical people, Christianity is the most imaginable and at its worst corruption. The Christian church has left nothing untouched by its depravity, it has turned every value into worthlessness, every truth into a lie, and every integrity into baseness of soul. Christianity intentions, is to make a self-contradiction, an art of self pollution, a desire to lie at all costs, an aversion and contempt for all good and honest instincts! To me that's what reflects Christianity. I call Christianity the great curse, the large inner corruption and the immortal shame of mankind ... Fucking Christ!

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
14 - War Feres: I want to first thank the space and valuable support, and to all who in one way or another help us in this battle endless ...

Dood Interview

vendredi 7 août 2015 à 06:25

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Dood is a depressive black metal band from the southern parts of the Netherlands. We are releasing our new opus “Liberating Self-Destruction” August 27th, 2015.

2.So far you have released 2 albums, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on both of the recordings and also how do they differ from each other?
The first album went pretty fast, me & Drahcir came up with some ideas and worked it out in Reason sequencer. Our intention was not to sound good, we just wanted to release it, it took about 2/3 weeks capturing it all and releasing it out to the public. Around 2013 / 2014 we started to work on “Liberating Self-Destruction”, we teamed up with Gnoom - Drums - which lay the rhythmical foundation down in the studio, now we used acoustic drums.. and as we were used to playing live, we recalled that energy, I tracked the guitars and bass on top of it in Logic, Drahcir his parts, the lyrics.. glueing it all together. Prior to recording of “Liberating Self-Destruction” the ideas were very clear and so did the sound. I Think for us all it’s a very  dark album. I personally think this is the darkest album I ever created.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
Strange things occurred prior to recording of “Liberating Self-Destruction”, so did the lyrics and music, both depressing and dark. From the instrumental track “Silence” with it’s hypnotic theme or “Ab Insiddis Diaboli” with furiously fast blasts, ending on acoustic guitars. We experimented with different approaches , tired of doing the same, thus ranging more dynamically also on lyrical themes, we moved away, resulting in new material for “Liberating Self-Destruction”.

4.I know that the bands name means 'death' in Dutch, how does this name fit in with the musical style that you play?
It’s the state of being dead, the end of all things, regarding Death as a genre, much metal is in it’s own way monotonous after a while, some bands get influenced from one band, others on ten or hundred different, for Dood we do not try to sound as a particular band.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We did shows with Nargaroth, Endstille, Lord Mantis and many more, we let the music and sound do most of the work, with Drahcir as frontman, and releasing all this energy out to the audience. 

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
Sure, we’ll do some shows in the future.

7.The new album was self released but the band has also worked with labels before in the past, are you open to working with another label or do you prefer the independent route a lot more?
We decided to release some copies for our fans, I do not see this directly as an independent route.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
For those who believe in true negativity, we invite you all to listen to DOOD - “Liberating Self-Destruction”

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?
Triest / Ynzir / Turris Arcanum / Beliar / Mescaliner / Hate Medition (Phenex, ex-dood)

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We are thinking about releasing an Dark Ambient/Acoestic album in the future.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
When we listened to “Liberating Self-Destruction” in review, we heard many different elements. Sometimes I try to play my distorted guitars as a orchestra, or Drahcir using ancient chanting in the music. Various music styles.

12.How would you describe your Satanic and Luciferian views?
Dood

Leibstandarte Luzifer/Succubus/2015 Demo Review

jeudi 6 août 2015 à 09:51

  Leibstandarte  Luzifer are  a  band  from  Germany  that  plays  a  very  raw and  humorous  form  of  black  metal  and  this is  a  review  of  their  self  released 2015  demo  "Succubus".

  A  very  dark  drone  sound  starts  off  the  demo  along  with  some  melodic  guitar  leads  and  grim  black  metal  screams  and  growls  and  after  the  intro  the  music  starts  going  for  more  of   a  raw  second  wave style  that  uses  a    great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  also  has  the  production  qualities  of  some  of  the  90's  demo  bands   that  never  released  an  actual  album.

   When  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  remain  true  to  a  raw  style  of  black  metal  while  they  also  have  their  melodic  moments  at  times  and  clean  playing  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  while  the  music is  mostly  rooted  in  second  wave  style  elements  of  European  pop  music  can  be  heard  briefly  and  some  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and   later  tracks  also  brings  in  atmospheric and  experimental  elements.

  Leibenstandarte  Luzifer  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  raw  and  grim  while  also  not  acting  all  seriously,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  old  school  while  the  lyrics  cover  drinking  Waldi  and  humorous  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Leibenstandarte  Luzifer  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  humorous  black  metal  band  and  if you  are a  fan  of this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Succubus  Cleaned  My  House  At  Night"  and  "I've  got  A  Hole  In  My  Shoe".  8  out  of  10.

Jotnarr/Burn And Bury/SuperFi Records/2015 EP Review

jeudi 6 août 2015 à 08:22

  Jotnarr  are  a  band from  the  United  Kingdom  that  plays  a  mixture  of  raw,  atmospheric  black  metal  and  hardcore  punk  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2015  ep   "Burn  And  Bury"  which  was released  by  SuperFi  Records.

  A  very raw  and  lo-fi  black  metal  sound  starts  off  the  ep  and  also  speeds up  and brings  in  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats and  melodies  and  after  grim  screams  are  added  into  the  music  more  hardcore  punk  elements  are  added  into  the  music  and  the  songs  also  start  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  You  can  hear  elements  of  post  hardcore  in  the  bands  musical  style  while  the  slower  sections  bring  in  a  touch  of  doom  metal  and  some  of  the  tracks  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing  and  acoustic  guitars  which  also  adds  in  a  touch  of  progressive  and  post  black  metal  while  the  songs  also  still  have  their  raw  moments  and  the  last  track  is  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Jotnarr  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  perfectly  balanced  between  the  more  atmospheric  and  post  style  as  well  as  bringing  in  the  old  school  rawness  with  a  touch  of  hardcore  punk  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own, the  production  sounds  very  heavy  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  nature  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Jotnarr  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  raw,  atmospheric  black  metal  and  hardcore  punk  and  if  you  are a  fan  of  those musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rise  by  Sun"  and  "Hernswolf".  8  out  of  10.

mercredi 5 août 2015 à 08:32

  Fjorsvartnir  are  a  solo  project  from  Denmark  that  plays  a  very  melodic  and  pagan  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2015  album  'Mzoraxc  Forbandelse"  which  was  released  by  Grom  Records.

  Nature  sounds  and  acoustic guitars  start  off  the  album  along  with some  atmospheric  synths  a  few  seconds  later  which  also  mix  in  with  the  heavier  guitars  a  minute  later  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  when  vocals  are  utilized  they are  done  in  more  of  a  grim  black  metal  style.

  Most  of  the  tracks  are  long  and  epic  in  length  and  the  solos  and  leads  that  are  used  on  the  recording  remain  true  to  melodic style  of  pagan  metal  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  more  of  a  raw  black  metal  style  finds  its  way  onto  the  recording  along  with a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats and  death  metal  growls  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections of  the  recording.

  In  some  songs  a  small  amount  of  spoken  word  parts  can  be  heard  and  as  the  album  progresses  clean  playing  can  be  heard  at  times  and  they  also  bring  in  a  brief  instrumentals  and  some  of  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  also  brings  in  a  few  seconds  of  operatic  female singing.

  Fjorsvartnir  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  a  melodic  style  of  black  metal  and  mixes  it  in  with  the  more  atmospheric  side  of  pagan  metal  to  create  an  album t hat  is  very  grim  while  still  having a  great  amount  of  melodies,  the  production  sounds  very  heavy  and  powerful  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Danish  and  cover  Northern  Mythology,  Vikings  and  Battle  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Fjorsvartnir  are  a  very  great  sounding  melodic  pagan/black metal  project  and  if you  are a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ravniskrig  Og  Ulvehyl"  "Mzoraxc  -  Modet  Med  Underverdenden"  and  "Det  Sidste  Slag".  8  out  of  10.
